This kaupapa Māori research project responds to criticisms that research in the field of Māori education is often not determined by whānau or for whānau. This is particularly the case for whānau and Māori communities at the ‘chalk face’ working in Māori education.  This project puts whānau voices centre-stage. This study is being guided by the overarching goal of bringing together the collective wisdom, aspirations, and experiences of whānau. It is based around a collaboration with other Māori education researchers, and communities committed to Māori educational aspirations.

The findings from this study have built a collaborative Māori-led and whānau-informed research agenda for Te Wāhanga, NZCER over the next 5 years.
